Virtual Event FAQ
What is the difference between the three types of CAPC virtual events?
- Webinars are didactic sessions focused on emerging topics in the field and successful palliative care program models, with on-demand viewing available.
- Virtual Office Hours are small-group, Q+A consulting calls with leading subject matter experts. These sessions are intentionally designed to be for a smaller number of attendees in order to ensure an engaging session for all. Virtual Office Hours are not recorded. These are a safe space for attendees to speak with faculty and peers.
- The Master Clinician Series offers one-hour sessions where members learn about complex patient cases from leaders in the field.
Are virtual events only for CAPC members?
Full access to CAPC virtual events, including webinars, Virtual Office Hours, and the Master Clinician Series is reserved for CAPC members. CAPC occasionally offers briefings and other virtual events that are open to all.
Do virtual events provide Continuing Education credits?
CAPC virtual events do not offer continuing education credits.
Our online clinical training courses do offer continuing education credits for physicians (+ABIM MOC points), nurses, social workers, and case managers.
How do I register for CAPC virtual events?
What if the event I want to join is full?
Space is limited for all virtual events. Webinar recordings will be posted within 48 hours for you to watch at your convenience. Virtual Office Hours are recurring sessions with smaller capacity, so if a session is full, please sign up for next month’s session.
Are virtual events recorded and made available for viewing after the event?
Webinars are recorded and posted in the On-Demand Webinars section within 48 hours of the live event. Master Clinician Series events are not recorded, but Case Reviews are posted after the event. Virtual Office Hours are NOT recorded; these events provide a safe space for attendees to speak with faculty and peers.
What tech platforms are used for virtual events?
Webinars and the Master Clinician Series use Webex. Virtual Office Hours use Zoom.
What are the technical requirements needed to participate in a CAPC virtual event?
You will need a computer, tablet, or smartphone that has a camera, microphone, and Internet access.
For Virtual Office Hours, you will need to download the Zoom Meetings app. We recommend speaking to the IT team at your organization to address any firewall issues that may prevent access. You can also access the session you signed up for with the dial-in information included in the confirmation email.
How do I join the live event?
When you register, you will receive a confirmation email that includes a custom link to join the event. Please use the ‘add to calendar’ feature in the confirmation email so that you have access to your unique registration link and it is saved to your calendar. Do not share your unique join link with others.
